Teresa Pinkston and Fiona Duncan (pictured, from left) wrapped up a great lacrosse season with the Pin Oak Middle School white team. Playing on a team together was a reunion for these girls who cheered together for three years on the Southwest Football League (SFL) cheer team. The Pin Oak white team started practicing together in the fall of 2020, as soon as pandemic restrictions allowed, and were able to play a full spring season of games. Most of the sixth and seventh graders were new to the sport but learned quickly and enjoyed playing against local teams, including Pershing Middle School and St. John’s School, as well as traveling to play teams in The Woodlands and Cypress. The team ended the regular season with a win over St. John Paul II.
